Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extension

Eyelash extensions are enhancements designed to add length, thickness and fullness to natural eyelashes to achieve a beautiful full luscious and long set of lashes that are natural and you won't even know they are there.They can be separated into two types: temporary (two weeks) and semi-permanent (up to 8 weeks).

Adna Cristina Beauty has years of experience in applying single semi-permanent eyelashes extension, giving clients the confidence they need. The lashes we use are of a professional product made of a soft and naturally curved synthetic material designed to bond to human eyelashes that last up to 8 weeks. Eyelash hair is particularly fine, and therefor the chemicals used are a specifically formulated bonding agent, it dries soft, remains flexible and bouncy and most importantly causes no damage to the natural eyelashes. 

Now a days there are many eyelash extension brands selling their own product which can be from flexible and medio durability to a much more quality products. Of course you will have to do infills from the second or third week which you pay around £25 to £40 and the service itself can be priced from £65 to £80 average. 

I had the service done many times and it does feel good, I loved the treatment so much that I decided to do the training and it was a success, all the ladies wanted to have their eyelashes 
done, it makes us feel more confident and good about ourselves.

I think if you haven't had the treatment yet, you should give it a try and see for yourself. The extensions doesn't last long if you are wearing oil based makeup such as liquid eyeliner or mascara. So when you have the eyelashes done try not to use oil based makeup and never rub your eyes; it will make your natural lashes fall out and also the synthetic lashes that are glued on them, you don't want that to happen before the time.

Mink & Silk Eyelash Extensions – What You Should Know

With the popularity of eyelash extensions growing globally, several news types of eyelashes are popping up. But what’s the difference?
Although any of the extensions will give you constant compliments, there are some vital differences between these popular eyelash extensions that you should be aware of.

Differences Between Mink, Silk or Synthetic Eyelashes

The main difference between the types of lashes comes down to their firmness, are they real fur, faux fur or synthetic.
Synthetic or Silk lashes are the heaviest, great for a really full thick look, often rated at 0.20mm in thickness.
Mink or Faux Mink are usually thinner and softer than Silk  rated at 0.15mm-0.2mm in thickness, but can also come thicker as well.
I usually use Mink, and I consult my clients to figure out the thickness that will work with their expectations.
Real Fur won’t hold a curl as well as Faux Fur.

Mink Eyelashes

Mink Lashes are the new craze. If you’re going for that 100% natural look, this is the best you can get. Most people love Mink because they look so natural and give them full, fluffy eyelashes.
Real Mink lashes come from the Mink tail, either the Siberian Mink or the Chinese Mink. The Siberian Mink are the better of the two.
There is also the Faux Mink, they are more affordable, come very close to holding all the same characteristics except if you get them wet, they won’t lose their curl which is a huge advantage over real Mink.


Mink lashes are known to be very light and soft, making them a more comfortable choice over silk lashes. They also have a gloss or shin to them and have a more natural fluffy look. They often come with a perm and will last a little longer than silk.


You should choose Mink lashes if you want extensions that you’ll be wearing for a prolong period of time. In other words, you plan on keeping them and continually retouched.
The minks are also  great if your own natural lashes are thinner, because the mink lashes are very light and soft.
If you want a more natural looking lash which you can apply mascara to enhance, then Mink should be your first choice.
Note: You should only use mascara designed for extensions.


Now this is the scary part. An initial set of Real Mink lashes will be a bit pricey.
I charge all first-time clients up with an initial set of Mink lashes for only £40 half set and £65 full set ( I often offer discounted prices on them also). 

Silk Eyelash Extensions

When someone says Synthetic Lashes they are referring to either Silk or Acrylic.
Synthetic Silk being the more popular of the two for the lighter feel. Not as light as Mink, but they are more comfortable than Acrylic and can be used for everyday use.


Synthetic Silk Eyelashes are great for short term wear or special occasions since they are thicker, full and have a uniformed perfect curve to them.
Since they already hold such a dark pigment, there is no reason for mascara.
They are usually much thicker than Mink lashes rated at 0.20mm.


Choose Synthetic Silk eyelash extension for those special occasions. A wedding, a photo-shoot or a part in a film. You can use them as everyday lashes as well but they won’t be as light and comfortable as the Mink lashes.

Elemis Skin Buff & Visible Brilliance - Review, Photos & Swatches

Hi Ya!!

Elemis is the leading luxury British spa and skincare brand favoured by as many as 6.5 million spa-goers per year. 
The successful combination of natural active ingredients with cutting-edge technology has enabled them to bring to market some of the most influential anti-ageing products and professional spa-therapies the beauty industry has ever seen.

A key figure in Elemis’ success has been the ongoing support of Jan Kusmirek, one of the world’s leading authorities on organic ingredients, Essential Oils and medicinal plant extracts. His expertise has enabled the company to discover some of the world’s most cutting-edge ingredients and manufacturing techniques to guarantee every product delivers maximum results. 

I have been using Elemis Skin Buff & Elemis Visible Brilliance for about 4 weeks now and ladies I will be really honest with you.

When I started using the skin Buff, I stopped with my old one straight way, which was Neutrogena - Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub, It left my skin so smoothly even that my family noticed after a few days using it, exfoliator and cleanser in only one product, I didn't need to use any other product; if you can use only one which reduces your shower time specially if you don't have much time in the morning like me, that's even better. Don't you agree?

The skin buff left my skin with a fresh complexion every morning, yes, I use it every day to give me the results I want and I have always done this way, for years; scrubbing my face every day. 
Its tiny crumbs really cleans my face and it's very efficient, it eliminates and prevents blackhead, well at least on my skin it worked beautifully, as my face was all covered in black heads. I don't know why, but my skin stated being like that from my 30's, any way I found what I was looking for. Thank you Elemis!

I also liked Elemis Visible Brilliance which is a serum that brightens and re-energises stressed skin, for people like me who work the whole day on a stressed environment. Yes readers, I work everyday from 10am to 6pm from Monday to Friday; I'm a working mum of two, so the job is doubled and this serum is everything.

 I apply the serum everyday in the morning and night just before I go to bed, and I don't use anything else. My skin feels so much rested and smoothed in the morning when I wake up. It works like a prep for my skin before makeup, but if you really want to see results you must use it everyday. If you fail this process, it will take longer to show.

At the top, you have to twist the collar anti-clockwise and press the white pump to dispense the product and when you are done twist the collar back to close it. Easy peasy!! I'm still using both skincare products because I really liked them; it worked for my skin which was dull, with black heads, tired and they just made my life easier.

Right! I do find them quite pricey, but it's worth a try!
Skin Buff online for £24.60 
Visible Brilliance for £40.90 

So ladies I really hope you liked my review and let me know if you have ever used Elemis product and what your thoughts are...

Thank you for stopping by...
